(martin scorsese) i think of it as noir in that i love the noir film. in that as much as possible an homage, my version of noir. but in reality i was trying to get as close as possible to my experience. now, wait a minute. what? well, you're right. i'm right? yeah, was it -- last tuesday? yeah, that's last week, before the one next week. i guess i'm responding to hearing my uncle speak or my aunt or my father talk about films they liked, but they said, "oh, that scene, you know what they did." he said, "no, but they'd never show that, though." or "they'll never show the -- the real workings of how these guys in organized crime deal with each other." or, "the real workings of a guy who really owes money." so my intention was: why not? why not really show it? i borrow money from you cause you're the only jerk-off that i can borrow money from without paying back, right? ya know that's what you are -- that's what i think of you, a jerk-off.
